what do they act like?what color nipples?
To know if your cat is pregnant is to follow these steps.
1. Check to see if her nipples are larger. Around 3 weeks, a pregnant female's nipples will often turn bright pink. If they are, she is pregnant. If not, wait another week, and check again. Some may not turn bright pink or become enlarged, but most will.
2. Very gently run your hand over the surface of her tummy to see if you feel a sort of swelling like huge balls the size of walnuts. Do not put too much pressure on the lumps, the lumps are kitten heads.
3. When a cat becomes pregnant, her personality may change. Pregnant cats become very affectionate, and not all teeth and claws.
4. Stand back and look at your cat's overall shape. From the side, pregnant cats frequently look a little swayback with a slightly distended tummy. From the top looking down at the cat, a pregnant cat's tummy is frequently distended slightly more than halfway from the neck to the tail. This look has been compared to the posture of a burro. If your cat's profile has changed from normal to burro, she might be pregnant.
5. To distinguish pregnant from fat: fat cats are fat all over, including the neck, the legs. etc. Pregnant cats are not. However, keep in mind that fat cats can be pregnant too!
6. When a pregnant cat gets close to delivering her kittens, she may start nesting; arranging blankets, towels, straw, whatever, into a secure place to have her kittens.
7. After six weeks her nipples will also grow considerably. From then on they are filled with milk.
8. Your cat will want to eat more and more. This is good. Give her enough (her regular food mixed with kitten food), but don't overfeed her. A few days before birth, her appetite will decrease again.
9. One last thing. Sometimes a queen shows cat pregnancy symptoms, without actually being pregnant. This is called false pregnancy. However, this is quite rare.
